Design and Development of Lifeboats - Damage Evaluation and Repair of Composite Structures

Authors: R.M. Cripps
Abstract: The RNLI has been using composites for the construction of some of its lifeboats since the early 1970s and in the late 1980s a decision was...


Stress Analysis and Identification with Full-Field Measurements

Authors: M. Grédiac
Abstract: The wealth of information provided by full-field measurement techniques is very useful in experimental mechanics. Among different possible...


Knowledge of Service Loads – The Key to Structural Integrity

Authors: Roderick A. Smith
Abstract: This paper emphasises the importance of the knowledge of service loads to both the initial design process and the maintenance of structural...


Elastic-Plastic Behaviour of a Plate with a Central Hole by Photoelastic Coating Method

Authors: N. Matsumoto, S. Ohtaki, M. Ohira, H. Kasayama
Abstract: An application of the elastic-plastic problem by the photoelastic coating method is presented in this paper. A general procedure of this...


Experimental Application of the Virtual Fields Method to Elasto-Plastic Behaviour

Authors: Yannick Pannier, René Rotinat, Stephane Avril, Fabrice Pierron


Elastic-Plastic Stress Analyses by Digital Image Correlation and Nonlinear Hybrid Method

Authors: Kenji Machida
Abstract: In previous studies, the elastic stress field near the crack tip was investigated by digital image correlation and the 2-D intelligent...


Thermoelastic Stress Analysis of Nitinol Self-Expanding Stents

Authors: James Eaton-Evans, Janice M. Dulieu-Barton, Edward G. Little, Ian A. Brown
Abstract: Self-expanding stents are small medical devices used to treat vascular disease and are typically fabricated from a super-elastic, shape...


A New Method of Measuring Young's Modulus for Flexible Thin Materials Using a Cantilever

Authors: Atsumi Ohtsuki
Abstract: This paper describes a development of a new method (: Cantilever Method) to measure Young’s modulus of flexible materials. The method is...


Tensile Testing of MEMS Materials at High Temperatures

Authors: William N. Sharpe
Abstract: This paper presents three kinds of high-temperature test methods for three different materials along with the results. Resistively heated...


In Situ Measurement of Internal Stress in Electroless Plating by Television Holographic Interferometry

Authors: S. Kakunai, H. Hayashihara, T. Sakamoto, H. Matsuda
Abstract: Electroless plating can uniformly plate a material on irregular and non-conducting surfaces. Consequently, it has been utilized widely for...
